My thoughts:

This article was very helpful for me. It was very detailed about what you should do while interning. I never would have thought about going to my college advisor in search for a potential internship. I also realize that I need to research internships before I take them. This will minimize me wasting precious time fetching coffee and more time working hands on projects for the field of work that you are trying to pursue. Also you should always set goals and to try and stay busy because you don’t want to have the boss comes over and you are just sitting there doing nothing.  You should also ask as many questions as you can so that you can gain as much knowledge as you can in a small amount of time.

My Thoughts:

This article really made me think about trying to get internships while in school. After reading this I will strongly pursue trying to obtain an internship for multiple reasons. One of them is of course gaining real, real world experience in the area you wanting to work in. Another good reason to get an internship is because you make connections to people that can help you get a job there when you finish in school. It is always a good thing when someone that works at a company puts in a good word for you and you can get hired easier. Lastly a benefit for an internship is that you more than likely will get paid at a good wage, which you can  save and put towards school.

My thoughts:

This article was very informative for me, it highlighted how and what internships are and how to pursue them. I found this very helpful because it laid out what to do while you are an intern.  Once you get your internship your goal is to work hard and absorb all of the information you can while also making connections that could potentially help you get a job once you graduate college. In addition internships might be the first thing you could add to your resume. Internships are also a great way to see how the work you do in the class room is put into use in the work world.  It is also important to research about the internship because you might get the internship and then find out you are nothing more than a waiter getting people coffee.
